First place awarded with 91%! Riding bitless was very much encouraged and points were deducted if you rode in a bit. Very proud of my boy as first time ridden bitless at an event and out of the home arena and first time out since starting to lose his eyesight in one eye.
Tumbleweed’s first show, my first show bitless and my first blue ribbon!
Issy and I did our first hunter trial of the year last weekend, our first time ever out bitless and she came 2nd out of 48! 1 second off first place and easily our best xc round to date – something to be said about going bitless!

The absolute highlight of the day was not winning a ribbon, but rather having a calm and happy horse, something I simply could not achieve without my bitless. I am so grateful to be apart of a community where bitless is celebrated!
